Thin Mint Icebox Cake

  It's that time of year again, Girl Scout cookie time.  I bought my boxes a few weeks ago.  I love to buy some boxes to eat and I always add a couple of boxes to bake with.  I was a Girl Scout until I was 15 years old, so I always like to support the girls.  I bought my cookies from a really cute … [Read more...]

Baileys Cheesecake

  My favorite dessert to both eat and make is cheesecake.  I love how you can start with a base recipe for cheesecake and make so many different variations.  Also cheesecake is not that hard to make, it just takes long to cook.  Since my husband does not like cheesecake (I know, he's crazy), I … [Read more...]

Strawberry Nutella Pull Apart Bread

Valentine's Day is almost here! My husband and I don't have a lot planned.  We like to go on dates throughout the year, so Valentine's Day is not as much of a big deal.  Plus Valentine's Day gets a lot harder when you have kids.  It is hard to find a sitter, because everyone wants to go out and has … [Read more...]

White Chocolate Chunk Toffee Cookies

 For the fourth year in a row I have participated in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap.  The Cookie Swap is where food bloggers get together, bake cookies, send them to other bloggers, and blog about the cookies they made.  I was paired up with three other bloggers who I sent a dozen cookies to and … [Read more...]

Salted Caramel Pumpkin Bread Pudding

This past weekend I was in Chicago for BlogHer Food.  I will do a recap post later, but I had a really good time.  I had never visited Chicago before, so it was nice to go touring with my husband when I wasn't in the conference.  I have been exhausted this week though and still haven't caught up on … [Read more...]

Salted Caramel Pumpkin Bread

I can't believe that Halloween is over and that Thanksgiving is coming up soon.  Have you been to the store lately?  All the Christmas stuff is already out.  I went into a store on November 1 to try to find some discounted Halloween costumes.  There were no costumes, just Christmas outfits.  Crazy. … [Read more...]

Peanut Butter Brownie Pie

Today is National Chocolate Day.  Today I am posting a chocolate recipe in memory of Joan from Chocolate, Chocolate, and More.  The food blogging community is very close and we were all saddened to hear that Joan passed away suddenly last week.  She was a healthy 49 year old that went to bed with a … [Read more...]

Peanut Butter Cup Caramel Brownies

Halloween is coming up in about a week and a half.  My kids can't wait to go trick or treating.  They are also looking forward to all the Halloween parties we have planned to go to.  They both have Halloween parties at school and they were invited to two additional Halloween parties. Halloween is … [Read more...]

Salted Caramel Apple Cider Bundt Cake

I cannot believe that fall is already here. It seems that summer just started yesterday.  I love the food associated with fall, but I don't like the fact that winter will be here soon.  Winter is my least favorite season, I really can't stand the cold and could do without snow.  I like the weather … [Read more...]

Caramel Apple Pull Apart Bread

  When I browse other blogs and Pinterest, I am always awed by different pull apart breads that I see.  They always look so delicious, but I figured they would be really hard to make.  When I realized that I could easily make my own version using refrigerated biscuits, I knew I had to try … [Read more...]
